Canepa's road and race car restorations are renown around world for their excellence in detail, durability of work, and ultimate drivability. We believe that a truly finished car should drive as good as it looks, and that the mechanical functionality of the car is as important as the cosmetic appearance.

We have completed many restorations that have won at the highest levels of competition, from premier concours such as Pebble Beach and Amelia Island, to cross-country rallies and historics like the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion.

Restoration


With world-class artisans in our employ, and specialists in every area of restoration we can address everything necessary to finish a restoration in-house including: upholstery, fabrication, metal forming, body finishing, paint, composites, electrical, and extensive mechanical work. With the ability to do all facets of work in house we maintain control of the entire restoration process, and it gives us the ability to work on any scope of project from minor paint and body repair, to a complete show-winning restoration.

Canepa represents exceptional quality coupled with unparalleled craftsmanship and attention to detail. This exceptional quality has resulted in several best of show, and class winning automobiles in the past five years.
